Who We Are

Established in 2000, Freshcare is an Australian-owned and operated company providing internationally recognised assurance standards for the fresh produce and wine grape industries.

As a purpose-driven organisation, Freshcare is funded through participation, with all proceeds going back into the research, development, and science on which we’re founded to assure continuous consumer safety and environmental stewardship.

Our purpose is to ensure our best-practice standards and services meet the industries’ needs now, and for the future, to safeguard Australian producers and industry.

Supported by user-friendly resources and training, Freshcare standards help Australian producers demonstrate their capacity to grow, pack, and distribute safe, sustainable, quality produce for customers and consumers worldwide.

Acknowledgement of Country


In the spirit of reconciliation, Freshcare acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of country throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea, and community. We pay our respect to their Elders past and present and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples today.
